day after that visit. >> that's governor romney showing a softer side in florida yesterday. talking about his personal connection to three people who have died. including a former classmate who attended his rallies recently. let me ask you, this is the first time that we've seen the governor try and show us this softer side. we saw it at the gop convention. but this looks and sounds a bit different. >> absolutely. i have to say, i mean i've been to tons and tons of mitt romney rallies, have never heard him on the stump. talk about these particular stories. we did see that at the rnc. you heard other people testifying about mitt romney, trying to humanize him a bit more. you obviously saw ann romney doing the same thing. they're trying to capitalize on what they see as a, a bounce out of the debate. where people did see a softer side of mitt romney even in that debate. he was giving some anecdotes about people he met on the trail. again they've got to humanize mitt. i add they're doing it so late in the game. 30 days left for this election and you've seen the democrats all summer pai

silver screen? >>> but first, will the real mitt romney please stand up. we'll talk to his campaign next about what's behind it. this is msnbc, the place for politics. >>> this is new video just into us here at msnbc of ann romney stopped at a romney campaign office in orlando, florida, just a short time ago after working the room, taking some pictures and signing memorabilia. she joined former congressman artur davis, calling supporters on the phone right there. >>> and an eye-popping number from the obama campaign. today we're learning it raised $181 million in september, more than either side has raised in a month so far. no word yet on how much the romney campaign has raised. news of the fund-raising figure falls a rally in wisconsin on thursday where the president was greeted by some $30,000 supporters. his biggest crowd so far. it is a shot in the arm for the president after a debate that most say he lost badly. right now, i want to bring in ann marie hauser, a romney campaign surrogate and former communications director for governor tim pawlenty's presidential campaign. thank

talk to his campaign's vice chairwoman, next. this is msnbc. >>> well, mitt romney is not backing off of his attacks of president obama's economic policies, no matter what the latest jobs report says. he told a florida crowd last night that the president is out of ideas and says wednesday's debate proved that. >> he got a chance to explain his jobs program. how he's going to create new jobs in america. did you hear what he had to say? i didn't either. i kept looking for a specific plan as to what he was going to do to create jobs. i heard more of the same, stimulus, hiring more government workers, raising taxes. those things don't create jobs, they cost jobs. >> joining me now is illinois democratic congresswoman jan schakowsky. she is also vice chair of the president's re-election campaign. and congressman, before i get to those jobs numbers, "the new yorker" has a cover, i'm sure you've seen, depicting mitt romney debating an empty podium, which, of course is a commentary on president obama's lackluster debate performance. you indicated the president may have been thrown off by

want to talk to you about green jobs. mitt romney brought it up during the debate. and then again last night. here is what he said. let's listen to that. >> i got a chance to ask him why it was with the deficit so severe and such a threat to our future that the president would $90 billion on so-called green energy jobs. anybody here have one of those? i keep looking. >> the president -- >> i guess -- >> the president didn't have an answer for that. the president didn't have an answer for romney on that on wednesday. he hasn't talked about green jobs since. is that a mistake? >> i think it was a a mistake during the debate not to defend his agenda on the issue more carefully and more strongly. romney had this line in the debate you don't just pick the winners, you pick the losers too. and the president kind of brushed it aside and didn't address it. i would like to have heard the president debate that issue more carefully. that said, the president is not running on green jobs being the center of his economic agenda. you heard a lot of that on wednesday night about what he is for in term

think, though, that mitt romney can make inroads talking about manufacturing with the unemployment rate now nationally below 7.8% and the fact that president obama was able to save the car manufacturing industry? >> i don't think so. if you talk to people in warren and youngstown, they know. one of every eight jobs are linked to the auto industry, of which the governor said let detroit go bankrupt. so, no one is going to fall for the trips and the traps of what the republicans are talking about. you know, this is the same man who said that he didn't care about the 47%, but now all of a sudden, he cares about the 47% because he is trying to get elected. so again, i believe that ohioans are going to stay strong. this is not the president's first trip to the rodeo when it comes to ohio. he's been paying attention to ohio for the past 3 1/2 years and that will not change when he is re-elected. >> one thing i want to talk to you about because we have you here is late last week this court victory in ohio, where an appeals court judge saying that your state can't single out the military f

want to point out this. we are going to talk about arkansan president. >> break out the pimento cheese. >> palmetto cheese? >> forgive me, i'm sorry. >> he's from baltimore. he's all orioles. >> to answer your question, this is a simple fact. mitt romney lied on the stage last wednesday. and bill clinton called him out on it. that's ironic and i won't say why. but the bottom lewin is that the president -- barnicle was right this morning on "morning joe." the president didn't look very presidential. he has a chance, two chances, to recover. vice president needs to boot him into it and that's what we are looking for. bill clinton is right. he has to call him on it. >> one other thing, first lady michelle obama was able to use the "sesame street" line and do so in a far more serious way than her husband did. at least what critics are saying. are we going to see a lot more of the first lady, bill clinton, bringing that kind of heat, is that enough to help the president's team dig itself out of that post-debate hole? >> you know, i think -- it certainly does help the first lady has approach

america. >> mitt romney holding a rally in ohio. this hour. it's about to get under way. in fact, we're going get a live update from the campaign trail in just a moment. in their weekly address, republicans also talking about the economy. it was delivered by oklahoma congressional candidate mark wayne mullet. >> he gets it. republican majority in the house has passed several bipartisan common sense proposals to address regulation that hurts jobs. >>> meanwhile police in colorado are investigating a shooting at president obama's denver campaign office. officials say people were inside when a shot was fired through the office window flid afternoon, fortunately no one was hurt. police say they have a description of what they're calling at this point a vehicle of interest. more on all of these hours throughout the next three hours right here on msnbc. >>> as we just mentioned, mitt romney packing his schedule tight today in ohio. you're looking at live pictures from portsmouth, romney's first stop before heading to another rally in lebanon, ohio, later this afternoon. our peter alexa

continuing the use of "sesame street" references. >> in times like this, what is he talking about? saving big bird. when i'm president, i'm going to help save the american family and get good jobs for every american. . >> nbc's peter alexander is on the bus with the romney campaign, traveling to that 5:45 event. he is live on the phone with us. pete, this second rally of the day in ohio, i imagine we are probably going to hear a great deal of what we heard at the first, no doubt. >> craig, you're exactly right. the religious trying to hammer home these messages. as you heard in that rally a little earlier today with about 3500 fans, reporters in attendances, a series of attacks lines against china, accusing the president of basically failing to label china a currency manipulator for political purposes. these are big issues here in the state of ohio, where manufacturing is critical. just a short time ago we heard from mitt romney's running mate paul ryan saying we're going to bring america back to number one in manufacturing. that stuff resonates in a state like this. but more than anythin

think we'll hear that level of detail of governor romney and the president just fine. >> susan, talk about the rhetoric that karen brings up. foreign policy certainly fair game topics of three debates. the vice presidential, two remaining presidential debates. when's the strategy behind today's speech from mitt romney? is he laying a pillar, a foundation of his campaign that may have been tampered with especially as jen brings up going overseas and kind of offended the relationship with british? >> well, the statement of the president's team is very disturbing i think because it's really beyond the pale. you don't go that far before you hear the speech. people don't want to hear that kind of discussion right now. they want to hear about substantive issues and therein i agree with karen and up to governor romney to deliver that but this is a great time politically for the governor to have this speech. he's had a great debate. the speech when the president, there's an opening to attack the president on foreign policy. he's still hurt on the benghazi issue. there's room for him to grow

think the campaign was very busy talking about -- writing out some fact checking on mitt romney and just the one after another series of misstatements and outright lies that he made. but i don't think there's anybody on the campaign who feels that the president did as well as he could and as well as he will in the next debate. but the other thing is that we haven't seen a lot of movement, actually in the polls and movement away from barack obama. after some of the focus groups, both men had an increase in their favorability. you know, so we'll see what kind of effect it has long-term, but that i think he's going to do better. >> well, one thing did happen. we have found out that mitt romney's campaign says it has collected $12 million in online contributions since the wednesday debate. these are regular people. these are people who are impressed by his performance and contributed online. does your campaign feel threatened by that? >> well, you know, the online contributions of the obama campaign, 10 million people having contributed online, i don't think that the romney campaign is

to disappear. but focus will stay the same, with perhaps a bit more of a target, talking about the deficit and spending. you see the slogan we can't afford four more years like the last four years. governor romney has been ham thaerg home in recent days. we expect him to do the same again tonight. >> how is the prep going for the next debate? any ideas as to a change in strategy there? >> well, milissa, i can tell you they've been essentially prepping for this second debate, which is a town hall format for more than a year. governor romney did dos of town halls, particularly in the early primary states like new hampshire where you have rambunctious comments from a variety of folks. that is something he was very comfortable with. in the last few days they've been doing telephone town halls with voters in places like ohio and iowa. this morning they started a more formal prep. rob portman of ohio who has run high marks for his portrayal of governor obama in governor romney's first prep debate sessions arrived late last night. this morning they did a full debate session prep session.

again. >> one out of every eight jobs in ohio dpeenld on the auto industry. how does romney counter that argument? >> by dining what he did in the debasement they heard unfilter and what he's talking about, his plan to create the economy and improve the economy in ohio. ask coal miners how important this is for him. i think ohio is an interesting place to watch for romney and ryan. they're on the defensivdefensiv. they're listening to what they had to say. they've gotten their attention and you're seeing it in the polls. the polls have really tighten add lot. the last debate, the first debate with romney and obama really upended the opportunities for us in ohio. so you're seeing that. they're on the offense and it's interesti interesting. you u saw the obama campaign announce that clinton and springsteen are going to be campaigning for them in ohio. to me that seems they have to pull out the big guns now to not seat any ground. >> i mean governor romney, this is his fourth day in a row in ohio. i think both campaigns have been pretty clear how important the buckeye state is. i'll as

into high gear. bill clinton as what is talking about, his rally in indianapolis at the moment. today joe and jill biden stump in ryan's home state of wisconsin. mitt romney holds a rally in virginia before joining forces with ryan in ohio. the president weighed in on biden's performance before boarding air force one. >> i thought joe biden was terrific tonight. i could not be prouder of him. i thought he made a strong case. >> mike viqueira joins me live from the white house. politico roger simon wrote this, "whatever joe biden was drinking thursday night, barack obama ought to order a case of it." when you look at that, is there more pressure on the president to be like biden now? >> it's ironic you would ask that because the idea was biden was going to take pressure off the president by giving the base, the democrat base the most ardent supporters a little red meat for their appetite, that that appetite left unsateed. the president will leave here tomorrow on the weekend heading south of williamsburg, virginia. another training camp, debate camp for the next several days in

haven't heard mitt romney or barack obama certainly talk about marijuana legalization much in any of the presidential debates or even in their town halls or rallies. but it is interesting that there is is a marijuana legalization on the ballot in the battleground state of colorado, which you can make the argument that young people who might favor democrats, that might get them out to the polls, there's also an abortion measure in the battleground state of florida, which would ban public funds for abortions and that you could make the argument that that that's exactly to rally social conservatives to vote for the republican ticket. those are the two to watch as it relates to the presidential contest in the battleground states. >> our senior political editor, thank you. >>> campaign straj bretegy brea. the so-called message wars may be about to get truly frenzied.

apparent romney flip-flop on abortion. will women's issues loom large in tonight's debate? we'll talk with debbie wasserman schultz. and do you think tonight's debate will change the momentum of the race? tweet me your thoughts. >>> this has been my life's work is talking about what's happening to america's middle class and let's face it, america's middle class has been getting hammered. >> then i suggest you put down the hammer because it's your regulations and your policies that will be hurting -- >> and that wasn't the only time last night. massachusetts gop senator scott brown and challenger elizabeth wash trading jabs last night. that's an example of one high stakes senate race that could reshape the balance of power in the u.s. chamber. right now the dems have a 53-47 vote advantage. 33 seats are up for re-election, but on the national map, it's only about a dozen battleground states that are really in play. joining me now from danville, kentucky is mark in your murray. no clear winner, so what are you seeing? >> this is a pure toss up contest. not only is it probably the nastiest se

week after what most describe as a debating disaster, president obama's talking about why he lost round one. >> that debate, what happened? >> well, governor romney had a good night. i had a bad night. >> how bad? >> well, it's not the first time i've had a bad night, but i think what's important is that the fundamentals of what this race is about haven't changed. >> one debate down. the vp showdown just hours away. a new poll today shows mitt romney makes gains in three key swing states. romney flips the script in virginia, now leading by one point. the fight for florida is a statistical dead heat. and romney has narrowed the gap this ohio, although the buckeye state, what every republican needs to win the white house, is still solidly in obama's corner. >> this is the conversation we were having before both conventions. so almost as everything has been erased. >> i think it accounts for the hemorrhaging that they let romney back in. >> joining me now is ed schultz host of the ed show. and let's start with this. congressman ryan as well as the chairman both trying to set the stag
